    CONTROL QUESTION: What are the causes, delays or roadblocks in the process that create non value added cost?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:
    The big hairy audacious goal for the Cost Management Process in 10 years is to completely eliminate all non-value added costs by streamlining and optimizing the entire process. This will result in significant cost savings and higher efficiency, giving our company a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

    Some of the causes, delays or roadblocks in the process that create non value added cost include:

    1. Manual and Paper-based Processes: By transitioning to digital and automated systems, we can reduce the time and resources spent on manual data entry and processing, which often leads to errors and delays.

    2. Inefficient Data Collection and Analysis: In order to identify areas of cost inefficiencies, accurate and timely data is crucial. Implementing advanced data analytics tools and techniques can help us gather and analyze data more efficiently, allowing for better decision making and cost reduction strategies.

    3. Lack of Standardization and Centralization: Without standard processes and centralized control over cost management, it becomes difficult to track and manage costs effectively. Implementing standardized procedures and centralizing the process can improve accuracy, reduce redundancies, and eliminate unnecessary costs.

    4. Poor Supplier Management: Suppliers play a significant role in our cost management process, and poor supplier relationships can result in delays, errors, and even fraud, leading to unnecessary costs. Improving communication and collaboration with our suppliers can streamline the process and reduce costs.

    5. Resistance to Change: Implementing new strategies and processes can be met with resistance from employees who are comfortable with the existing ways of working. We must address this resistance and provide training and support to ensure smooth transition and adoption of new practices.

    By addressing these roadblocks and implementing efficient and effective cost management practices, our company can achieve the BHAG of eliminating all non-value added costs in 10 years. This will not only result in significant cost savings but also improve overall profitability and sustainability of our organization.

    Cost Management Process Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    The client, a manufacturing company, was facing significant financial challenges due to high costs in their production process. Despite having a well-defined cost management process in place, the company was struggling to reduce overall costs and improve profitability. The leadership team approached our consulting firm to conduct an in-depth analysis of their cost management process and identify the key causes of non-value added costs. Our consulting methodology involved a thorough assessment of the current process, identifying delays and roadblocks, and implementing solutions to optimize cost management.

    Consulting Methodology:

    Our consulting methodology consisted of the following steps:

    1. Current Process Assessment: The first step involved a detailed analysis of the company′s cost management process. This included a review of cost data, interviews with key stakeholders, and a flowchart of the process. This helped us gain a better understanding of the process and identify potential areas for improvement.

    2. Identification of Delays and Roadblocks: Using the data and insights gathered from the assessment, we identified delays and roadblocks in the cost management process that were contributing to non-value added costs. These included lengthy approval processes, data discrepancies, and lack of automation.

    3. Root Cause Analysis: In order to understand the underlying causes of these delays and roadblocks, we conducted a root cause analysis. This involved delving deeper into the processes and systems to uncover the root causes, such as outdated technology or poor communication channels.

    4. Solutions and Recommendations: Based on our analysis, we developed a set of solutions and recommendations to address the identified issues. These included streamlining the approval process, implementing new technology, and improving communication channels.

    5. Implementation: We worked closely with the client′s team to implement the recommended solutions. This involved training employees on the new technology and processes, as well as monitoring progress to ensure successful implementation.

    6. Monitoring and Evaluation: In order to track the effectiveness of our solutions, we set key performance indicators (KPIs) and regularly monitored and evaluated the cost management process. This helped us identify any areas that needed further improvement and measure the impact of our solutions.


    As part of our consulting engagement, we delivered the following:

    1. Detailed assessment report: This report provided a comprehensive overview of the current cost management process, including analysis of data, interviews, and process flowchart.

    2. Root cause analysis report: This report outlined the key areas of delays and roadblocks in the process, along with the underlying causes.

    3. Recommendations report: This report included a detailed list of solutions and recommendations to address the identified issues.

    4. Implementation plan: We developed a detailed plan for implementing the recommended solutions, including timelines and responsibilities.

    5. Training and support: We provided training sessions to employees on the new technology and processes. We also offered ongoing support and guidance throughout the implementation process.

    Implementation Challenges:

    The main challenge faced during the implementation phase was resistance to change from some employees. This was particularly evident when implementing new technology, as some employees were not familiar with the systems and processes. To address this, we provided thorough training and ongoing support to ensure successful adoption of the new processes and technology.

    Another challenge was aligning all stakeholders, including department heads and decision-makers, on the need for change and the proposed solutions. This required effective communication and collaboration, which we facilitated through regular meetings and presentations.

    KPIs and Other Management Considerations:

    To measure the success of our interventions, we set the following KPIs:

    1. Reduction in non-value added costs: Our goal was to reduce non-value added costs by 20% within the first year of implementation.

    2. Streamlining of the approval process: We aimed to reduce the time taken for approvals by 50%.

    3. Increase in efficiency: We monitored the process efficiency in terms of time, resources, and manpower.

    4. Employee satisfaction: We conducted surveys to measure employee satisfaction with the new processes and technology.

    In addition, we recommended that the company implement a cost management dashboard to monitor and track costs in real-time. This would provide the leadership team with accurate and timely data to make informed decisions.


    Our consulting engagement successfully identified the causes of non-value added costs in the client’s cost management process and implemented solutions to address them. The company saw a 25% reduction in non-value added costs within the first year of implementation, which significantly improved profitability. The implementation of a cost management dashboard also allowed the leadership team to monitor costs in real-time and make data-driven decisions. By streamlining the approval process and implementing new technology, the company was able to achieve greater efficiency and employee satisfaction. Through our thorough assessment and strategic recommendations, we were able to help the client optimize their cost management process and achieve sustainable cost savings.
